MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has formally recommended to the Office of the President that the closure of Boracay “can be done in phases,” Senior Deputy Executive Secretary Menardo I. Guevarra said. In his press briefing at Malacañang on Monday, April 2, Mr. Guevarra told reporters that “the Department of Trade and Industry has actually submitted a separate memorandum [to the office of the President], saying that maybe [Boracay’s] closure can be done in phases.” He added: “[It is] because of the effect on businesses and livelihood in the area. So that is something that the Office of the President will most likely consider as well.”
